4th Annual International Schools China 2018

Tuesday 20 November, 09:00 - Thursday 22 November, 17:00

Be sure to visit the GL Education stand at this year’s 4th Annual International Schools China 2018 conference to find out more about how our assessments can help your school.

Bernard Fawcett, GL Education’s International Consultant, will be exhibiting on behalf of GL Education over 20-22 November at the Shanghai Marriott Hotel Parkview.

International schools around the world use our assessments to help them accurately understand the abilities of all students, regardless of their primary language, to nurture their academic ability and wellbeing. The data is used by educators to personalise teaching and learning, benchmark and measure classroom progress, identify G&T and SEN learners, and evaluate the effect of interventions.

To arrange a meeting with Bernard or request further information, email international@gl-education.com or call +44 (0)20 8996 3369.


Data for Leadership

Student formative assessment data provides essential insight for school leadership teams to help them deliver better educational outcomes through personalising teaching and by identifying individual learning support needs.

The data also informs effective school self-evaluation and the evidence for accreditations and inspections. Jared Nolan will discuss the importance of this data and how an effective assessment programme can be implemented.
